My DH and I have the same ideas mostly. Just when it comes down to how to implement our ideas on a day-to-day level is we will disagree sometimes. When you are busy/tired/stressed its hard sometimes to be calm and level headed and so both of us don't always parent to our own ideals. Usually if one of us is struggling the other steps up to help out (obviously that only happens when both of us are home). I found a parenting book/website that we both really like the strategies offered so we sometimes refer back to that.

Df and I both agree on what the end outcome should be and what we value the most an want to instil in our own children. We have different methods however. But, because I have a pedagogical background and have been the primary caregiver while he works, I have authority and final say over how we parent them. He has a tendency to be too hard line with our sons, and because they are now 6 he all of a sudden expects them to exhibit adult traits with things such as listening and doing what they're told.
But, as I have said, if I feel he is expecting too much I gently remind him of their limits and bring him back onto my page.

DH and I had quite different upbringings so we talked a lot about our parenting styles before we had even conceived and we were definitely on the same page. We now have a 3 yo and an 18 month old, and although most of the time we work together, there have been times when I've thought he was too harsh and needs to try to empathise and be more understanding of our toddlers behaviour, whereas he thinks I'm being too soft and need to stop trying to think like a 3 year old! In general though, we completely agree on the way we want our children brought up and the morals and behaviours that are important to us. We also have a lot of respect for each other, so if there is an issue that one of us feels strongly about, we will always try to accommodate each other.
